Adam Page gives us his runner by runner preview and analysis for tomorrow’s Group 3 PFD Food Services Stakes at Flemington racecourse. View his tips.
1. Dane Julia
Wasn’t far away first up behind the very good mare Beaded at Caulfield. She is a dead set dry track horse and she gets that on Saturday. At her best, she’d blow these away but I suspect she might need this run also.
Looked the winner first up at the 200m mark but was outgunned late when finishing third behind Diplomatic Force. Has a tidy second up record and is one of the leading chances.
Stamped herself as a horse to be followed after a dazzling Summer preparation, including three very soft wins at the end of the campaign. Although her best form is over longer, she can certainly win this.
4. Casual Friday
Beautfiul ride by Chris Symons to get this mare home last start at Sandown, carrying 59kg. Drops 2.5kg on that run, drawn perfectly and Brett Prebble, who bagged a quartet of winners at Sha Tin last Sunday, is riding. Knockout hope.
5. Flying Tessie
Was very unlucky at Morphttville last start after missing the kick and getting into all sorts of trouble. She is fitter, has Williams in the saddle and rises to 1400m which she’ll appreciate. A chance.
6. Impressive Eagle
Has been good since joining the O’Brien yard but this is a rise in class for her. Not sure I can have her.
7. Im Discreet
Was ok behind Diplomatic Force last start. She looks the only leader in the race and she’ll prove hard to beat if McEvoy can dictate on the speed.
8. Music In The Park
Handy mare on her day but she rises in class and will need it easier.
Powerful finish first up. Rises to 1400m here and although she prefers a bog track, you have to include her in your selections based on her form. A definite threat at good odds.
She’s bursting to win a race, but not here.
Selections (Not in order): 2 Returntosender, 3 Aloha, 7 Im Discreet, 9 Preventable
